Vicious Circle. Round We Go Again… Grr!

Not a great deal to report lately.

Like a cheap roller-coaster my performance has been up, down and all over the place!

I’ve found the markets a little struggle again. Hence the vicious circle title. It would seem I consistently build on my confidence and my profits grow, trending steadily. Shortly followed by a sharp blow (like last Saturday – previous post). This then has a knock-on effect with my mental state. Performance dwindles and ‘sods law’ kicks in. Each and every time this happens it would seem other distractions appear in day-to-day life. Take trading time off me in the process…

Confidence takes a blow, followed by frustration and lack of time. It’s really quite difficult to break the cycle at times. I’m sure much like last month ill get my act together again sooner or later but it’s really quite frustrating.

I’m just wondering how many times it will take before this sequence of events will begin to fade?!?! But it wont beat me… as Thomas Edison once said;

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realise how close they were to success when they gave up”

  1. 🙂 I always repeat this sentence when facing drawn down in my trading. Probably it helps me to not quit trading at all.

  2. Nice quote, sums things up very well. With trading we’re playing with such a small margin any mistakes are likely to go against you so you need your eye on the ball at all times. Too many people overreact to those errors and completely throw away all the good work they’ve put in
